Sailors Missing After Another US Navy Ship Crash

The U.S. Navy Chief has said that there is no indication that Monday's collision of the US Navy guided USS John S McCain with a merchant ship Alnic MC in waters east of Singapore was intentional. He was reportedly working out at the time of the collision that struck not far from his sleeping quarters, flooding that area.

The collision caused significant damage to the hull of the destroyer, resulting in flooding to nearby compartments, including crew berthing, machinery, and communications rooms, the Navy said in a statement earlier.

Seven sailors died in mid-June aboard the USS Fitzgerald when it collided with a Philippine cargo ship off the coast of Japan.

U.S. Sen. John McCain says he is praying for the sailors aboard the USS John S. McCain after the warship collided with a tanker in Southeast Asian waters.

At a news conference Tuesday evening at the pier of Singapore's Changi Naval Base, where the damaged warship is now moored, Swift said it is "premature to say how many" bodies were found in the ship.

The USS John S McCain is named after Republican Senator John McCain, a Vietnam War-era naval aviator who was shot down and held prisoner for five years.

Cleveland Clinic CEO Toby Cosgrove was a member of one of those panels created to advise the president on the economy and jobs. Donald Trump has owned Mar-a-Lago, the Palm Beach estate built by cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post , since the 1980s.

The destroyer was making a routine port stop in Singapore and the tanker was carrying about 12,000 tons of crude oil to Singapore from Taiwan.

Four sailors were evacuated by helicopter to a hospital for treatment with non-life threatening injuries.

Singapore's Maritime and Port Authority said the Alnic also sustained damage, but that there were no injures among its crew. The US, Singapore and Malaysia launched a large-scale search and rescue operation on Monday to locate the missing sailors.

Two dead, eight injured in Finland stabbing attack
Police said the man in custody is likely to have acted alone, but they are not ruling out the involvement of other people. The two victims of Friday's terrorist attack were both Finnish, and among the injured were Italian and British citizens.

Trump said that his thoughts and prayers are with the U.S. Navy sailors, while McCain said that he and his wife Cindy would keep the sailors in their prayers as well.
